Great, thanks! I intend to spend most of my money there next week. Won't have proper things to eat for weeks, I guess. But I'm sure it's worth it.
I'm currently writing down a list ... the ones I'll buy myself next week and then there are those I'll just wish for when I'm out of money... So thanks again!

I'm suprised they didn't include The Sontaran Experiment with this one. It's only a 2 parter, and it is sandwiched between the already released Ark in Space, and this one. The stories are linked together as well.

It's too short to get a release on its own. Most odd.

Watched that one for the first time today. Bloody strange one. Enjoyable, but it appears that scenes have been deleted from it at random.

Has anyone of you been to the "Tenth Planet"? Any good? Interesting stuff? Better / more Dr. Who than Forbidden Planet?

Is that the one with the shrink wrapped Cybermen and Beryl Reid as the most unconvincing captain of a starship ever? If it is then I remember watching that when it was originally shown on TV and, although I loathed the guy, was really shocked at the "death of annoying character". In fact, if you read the DVD review on play.com it's not so much a review as telling you the story from start to finish. Makes you wonder why anyone would want to spend the money on the DVD.
 
Speaking of which, I was wondering if anyone does have this episode on DVD? If anyone has then I was just wondering what the audio commentary is like as it is by all four members of the TARDIS crew at that time. I'm strangely almost more interested in the commentary than the episode.

According to my DVD you're absolutely correct on that one Dick. They had to cut it from a 5 Episoder to a 4 Episoder Hence the rushed feel to the story and a lack of clarity in exposition.

I've never heard the commentary but there is an ace stop motion plasticine Epilogue  in the extras about what happened next to annoying character.

They'll have to reintroduce the element of many companions then dramatically at the end of the series just as they did with the regeneration then.

You make pathetic bets? I bet my mate 8p that the mini episode shown on children in need wasnt the first act of the xmas episode. Git still hasnt paid me, and I actually need 10p to get Empire tomorrow. Pesky need for a drink got in the way.

I know this is probably a little like heresy, but I was wondering if it is a good idea for people who have only seen the new Who to go back and watch the classic episodes.

Now before you all starting yelling at me, I loved the old show.  I have a lot of the books, annuals, vids, quiz and crossword books but I'm not so blinkered as to admit that held up against the new version they do look a little, well, dated.

For those of us who grew up with it, that's fine.  We can look past that and enjoy the show, but I do wonder whether people who have only seen the vastly more expensive production values of the new lot would even recognise the old stuff as being the same show.

I may not have explained this too well, but I'm not rubbishing anything - I'm just curious to know what it's like to look back to what was if all you've seen is what is.

If anybody knows what I'm talking about please feel free to let me know

I absolutely know what you mean. It's like Star Trek. The Original Series may seem a little weird to Newcomers - 'cause it is old,... "dated". I guess it's the same with Dr. Who - but it always depends on what you expect. For instance - I got to know Dr. Who because of the Ninth Doctor. Now I'm watching the old ones for the first time - and I must say: I love it! Especially Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee. Really great!
But I'm sure that some people who only know the new ones can't look past the "old look". I'm only glad I can!

With the old series, you look past the production values (and remember that, for their time and budget, they were actually not that bad, Invasion of the Dinosaurs excepted) and concentrate on the stories themselves. Whilst I love the new series to bits, the 45min running time can be counter-productive sometimes in terms of sacrificing a few good concepts and depth.

Anyway, what would people like to see on DVD next? I'm holding out for Seeds of Doom, though Inferno, the Pertwee one with all the shouty scientists, is after Genesis.

I never liked the old Doctor Who, but I love the new ones. Although I've only seen the Peter Davison episodes, so I am tempted to find some of the older episodes and watch them.

I read in the paper yesterday (although it was the Sun) that in season 2, the TARDIS will be making a stop off in Albert Square and the Doctor will be going to the Vic. Now, I know i am judging this based solely on face value, but am I the only one to think this is a terrible idea?

Also, went to the cinema last night to see Lucky Number Slevin, and to my surprise, I saw that the guy who plays Roses boyfriend, Mickey is in the new film Kidulthood.

I can't find any more smilies to express my disgust. Must be a Russell episode. He seems to have really bad taste in TV programmes.

So, do you think that she is actually playing an incarnation of the same character from The Unquiet Dead? In that she was Gwynneth and in Torchwood she is Gwen. I think it would be an interesting character arc to have there be some kind of cosmic connection between the two characters (even though, as far as we know, Gwynneth died before she had any offspring). Being Doctor Who, it isn't out of the question.

Good point, that rift can do very strange things. Especially when you've been stood in the middle of it.  

Also, it wouldn't be immediately obvious to anyone other than the viewer if there was some kind of connection as she never met Capt Jack. Might make for an interesting reveal if there was ever a cross-over episode though.
